Sunny skies and warm temperatures will continue the current pleasant stretch of weather.

This Afternoon: Sunny & Warm

Highs: Mid 80s | Wind: S 3-5 m.p.h.

Overnight: Clear & Comfortable

Lows: Mid 50s to Low 60s | Wind: SE 3-6 m.p.h.

Thursday: A Few Clouds, Warm

Highs: Mid 80s | Wind: SSE 4-8 m.p.h.

High pressure will continue to be the main weather feature around D.C. which will allow for more sunny skies, warm temperatures and low levels of humidity. Tonight, lows will fall back into the 50s and 60s under mostly clear skies. Thursday should continue to be pleasant with highs in the mid 80s under partly cloudy skies. Friday will see more of the same for the end of the work week with partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures in the mid 80s.

For the all important Labor Day Weekend, a few changes are on the way in the form of a cold front. Saturday will be warmer ahead of this front with highs near the 90 degree mark under partly cloudy skies. An isolated storm will be possible Saturday with the best chance in the mountains. Sunday and Monday, the front is expected to move through the area, bringing a chance for showers and storms each afternoon. Unfortunately there is still some disagreement in some of the modeling which should be resolved over the next few model runs. This should help us pin-point which of the days will be best for the weekend. As for now though, Saturday appears to be the best day, and the chances for storms exist on Sunday and Monday. We'll be sure to keep you updated.
